    The Burns Centre, Kiev, Ukraine, April 2012

    Here's a report from earlier in the year, when I took a look around a massive derelict hospital site in Ukraine.

    The site was originally intended to be a specialist burns centre, and the grounds also feature a sanatorium and a number of administrative buildings. However, due to lack of funding the project was abandoned early in the 1990s.

    Apparently the site gets used a lot by local airsoft fans... it's easy to see why considering the number of different buildings there are, as well as corridors, balconies and tunnels. The rough ground around and between the ruined buildings looks like some kind of warzone, full of craters, bricks and abandoned machinery.

    The main hospital building itself was locked, but by climbing onto the roof of a nearby shed we were able to get in through the first floor stairwell windows. The architecture has a strong Soviet feel to it (large imposing shapes and an abundance of concrete), with just a hint of art deco.

    The real highlight of the expedition was the view from the roof. Situated right on the outskirts of Kiev, from here it was possible to see the tall towers of the financial district, the golden domes and statues of the Old Town... and looking in the other direction, the flood pains of the River Dnieper fading into the distance.

    Cheers!
